“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” — Karl Lagerfeld
Spanish artist Ederson Sanchez, an architect and visual artist from Spain, has always had an aura of art around him. The same that has inspired many legendary artists like Pablo Picasso. Ederson’s oeuvres are his tryst and experiences with the meditative and spiritual India. He graduated in design yet his interest had attracted him towards 3D rendering. His formal training led him to experiment and try different things with geometry, making calculated pictures created by 3D PC programming.
Inspired by his stay in India, Ederson’s favoured subjects are meditative reflections, and otherworldly existence. He seeks for the intangible, impalpable in art, a harmony between the soul and physical excellence by means of 3D computerised models.
For him, art is a harmony between beauty and soul. Among the non-visible and visible; physical and mental part, Eder Sánchez continues to mature in the harmony of both parties, seeking the intangible part of the art by means of physical beauty.
Before the end of 2015, he started to build up his work, utilising his over-the-top, obsessive taste for the spiritual frame. A fixation showed through geometry. Through his body of work, Eder investigates various dialogues established between geometric figures. Therefore, they are carefully altered to make pictures of reasonable character. The simplicity and composition allow one to stop time, and quieten the mind. Eder Sánchez appears to welcome us through his work to ponder over musings and recollections of life, to look for better approaches for reflection. In the new universe of advanced art, Eder Sánchez is quickly making a mark with his imagination and profound way of dealing with the spiritual medium. In the course of the most recent two years, Eder has held several art shows, exhibitions in Germany, Berlin, Spain, New York, etc. He was also honoured for his untitled collection at the International Photographer of the Year 2018. The sheer simplicity and aura around Sanchez’s work also reminds us of Anish Kapoor’s works, which have a similar simplicity and elegance. The body of work on display at the gallery is a fresh approach towards spirituality and the meditative, something which hasn’t been explored or seen in a while. The art show on at Gallery Time and Space until March 17.
